As most expected, the exciting news released this week regarding Facebook, would be its partnership with Skype, offering one on one video calls between online users.

Although potentially exciting for the now 750 Million active users of Facebook, industry experts have been quick to note the limited services, even giving Google+ a massive thumbs up against its more established rival.

Maggie Shiels a Technology Reporter from Silicon Valley notes "Google+ product allows up to ten people to chat at any one time, while the Facebook/Skype video chat feature facilitates just one-on-one video chatting"

Skype did hint that there will be added features in future, but Google has stolen the lion's share of the headlines and Facebook will not enjoy being seen as following in its footsteps.
